and nothing happened. so the russian defense ministry said it didn't issue such an ultimatum, but the ukrainian defense forces said that they definitely received it. and journalists did report witnessing that ultimatum being handed to them. so, it's not quite clear who exactly is threatening whom, but the situation, you know, remains such that everyone is waiting for russia to play its hand and attack or not attack. >> what -- people in the area want or thinks, not the military but the people. >> i think ethnic russian community in crimea, which is the majority of the population on the peninsula, they are content to have the russian troops here protecting them from the new government that came to power in last month's revolution. however, they do not want any blood to be spilled. i think the minute that russia attacks any of the bases or kills any ukrainian servicemen, they will lose the support of the local population definitely. >> simon, if you will stand by, we will get back to you little later in the hour. thank you, simon. >> thank you. >> what should the united states

"america is with us." it's hard to argue with that statement as secretary of state john kerry arrived in kiev today laying flowers at a tribute
in over the black sea overnight according to the ukraine's defense ministry. john kerry is going to be in ukraine tomorrow. >> what about nato? >> nato ministers were meeting for two days and it was clear there were no military plans for the ukraine and russia's actions there. the north atlantic council, the political arm of nature -- nato -- met yesterday, but after speaking to the russian president, they were told the russian leader is quote not in touch with reality. there are about 6,000 troops inside ukraine. they defended the action at the opening of the human rights meeting in geneva. >> this is a question of defending our citizens and ensuring human rights >> he is trying to calm things and letting them know they have no plans of threatening them. >> how did we get here? things unravelled on february 20th when dozens of protesters were killed in kiev marking the bloodiest day in since the cold war. the president was kicked out and then he was granted asylum in ush russia and day later russian troops come in. and then russia is granted permission to deploy and they put of
and russians on a governmental level are talking for the first time today. the russian defense official is discussing ukraine with nato members in brussels as well. in this whole kind of flurry of diplomacy we're getting the sense of two end games. west is pushing the plan to include international observers on the ground, in crimea. direct talks between kiev and moscow and new elections in may a, russians want a return of the ousted ukrainian leader viktor yanukovych to hold the government and re-election in december. there's a gulf between the two side, but at least they're once again talking together. >> 4:03 in the afternoon in moscow, russia. thank you so much jim. back at home, there is new political fights to talk about. president barack obama 's $3.9 trillion budget is on capitol hill. the highlight is massive expansion of earned income tax credit. 13.5 million workers would be eligible for $60 billion in credit. also included, billions for roads and rails, spending the white house says will bolster the economy. republicans say the president's budget is dead on arrival. they comp

industry you better be brushing up your resume. >> the defense secretary said we would cut back our army levels to the lowest since 1940. let's just take a trip down memory lane, and listen to george w. bush and john f. kennedy. take a listen. >> we shall pay any price, bear any burden. meet any hardship. support any friend, oppose any foe to assure the survival and the success of liberty. >> further deep cuts cannot be made without seriously endangering the security of the nation. >> my budget includes the largest increase in defense spending in two decades. because while the price of freedom and security is high it is never too high. whatever it costs to defend our country we will pay. >> and then chuck hagel said this week, yeah, we probably are not going to be the most dominant force on planet earth anymore. >> it makes me very uncomfortable. i'm a big defense kind of person, america can do a lot. think what happened yesterday. the president of the united states had his republican secretary of defense, be the e one, to cover, the draw down troops in america. guess what they did tod
of the damage they will incur themselves and that the self-defense forces in crimea, he's also been saying in the last couple of minutes, that russia too no part in training them. he said we are not considering annexing crimea. the latest line from this conference saying we are not considering annexing crimea. he has said that he believes that what happened in ukraine was unlawful, unconstitutional and a coup and not legitimate and that the only legitimate leader is the ousted president viktor yanukovych. he said he is hoping to avoid any force in eastern ukraine. president putin has gone on to say russia will not provoke separatists moves in crimea. but he says russia does reserve the right to protect any russians who are under threat within ukraine. so not entirely clear how this is actually going to manifest on the ground. as you can see, a number of journalists with president putin in moscow. i'm afraid we have no translation, so we can't bring you this directly. but there are a number of lines coming out. i'll give you more that we are getting from moscow. local forces of self-defense
and on their tvs, those are pro russian local forces of self-defense. president obama appearing at a function had this to say regarding putin's claim. >> there is a strong belief that russia's action is violating international law. i know president putin seems to have a different set of lawyers making a different set of interpretations, but i don't think that's fooling anybody. >> secretary of state john kerry who arrived in kiev also dispute putin's claim when he was asked about it by my colleague, andrea mitchell. >> it's clear that russia has been working hard to create a pretext for being able to invade further. russia has talked about russian-speaking minority citizens under siege. they're not. >> kerry talked about a meeting with the new government and protest leaders including former pro boxer klitchko. the package includes a $1 billion in loan guarantees. still, the question is how to interpret putin's remarks today. not only did he deny russian troops had invaded crimea, he said that should russia wish to do so, they have every legal right since they would be doing it at the request of t
in crimea because they weren't russian soldiers and insisted they were some sort of self-defense force who couldn't be ordered around by moscow. so a key thing. what we did see today from europe with this $15 billion aid program promised, linked, of course, to an imf deal, that again, priority being to try and bail out the ukrainian economy, to put it back on an even footing. the priority for the western powers. because at the moment in the words of the finance ministry here, the coffers are empty. there's no money in the ukrainian treasury. it's about stabilizing ukraine and about at this point, keeping them calm while the western powers work on calming down the russians, if you like, chris. >> you know, i go back to 1961 in august, when khrushchev put up the wall in berlin separating east and west berlin. kennedy saw it with relief. he said better a wall than a war because it was better the soviets did that on behalf of their clients in east berlin and east germany than to go to war and close down west berlin all together. in this case, i'm trying to see what a reasonable decision by put
henneberg is live in washington with more. >> fox news confirmed that defense secretary chuck hagel spoke to his russian counterpart today about the situation in ukraine. pension officials said there are no military contingency plans for ukraine. we don't expect to hear from the president again today, although we possibly could get an offcamera update from the white house if there are new developments. in president obama's remarks yesterday he warned russia any violation of sovereignty and territorial integrity would be deeply destabilizing. >> represent a profound interference in matters that must be determined by ukrainian people. it would be a career violation of russia's commitment to respect the sovereignty and borders of ukraine. >> the president said united states will stand with the internationiale community in affirming there will be, quote, costs for any military intervention in ukraine by russia. some republicans are questioning what that means. what it means to russian president vladimir putin, especially since russia appears to be sending military assets and troops into the c
by reconsidering and now building the missile shield president obama has hit. don't cut the defense budget. we have the secretary of defense cutting while the russians history of defense is negotiating leases all around the world. primarily go after the keystone pipeline. take the price of oil because of the world market with oil, the price of oil will go down. the price of oil goes down below $89 per barrel, the russians are broke again. they need oil above $100 per barrel. the heavy political leverage coming from supplying the majority of other parts of europe. it translates into electricity. build terminals so that american natural gas can go there. he has played the long game and is doing it very well. stop thinking we're going to do this today or tomorrow. to this the idea five, seven years from now we are in a better position. jenna: thank you. jon: with midterm elections inching closer, new poll shows thethe holy key edge with ameris on matters they deal about most. new "washington post" post "abc news" poll shows 48% said democrats are more in touch with them on big issues compared with onl
are? >> reporter: well, i think i talked to a former defense minister and others today and people would find it laughable if it weren't so deadly serious that russian forces have not already intervened in crimea. obviously there is huge concern about russian forces extending into eastern ukraine, which we have not seen, thankfully. but there's nobody here that you talk to in kiev who believes that the forces were seeing on the ground in crimea, as our own people have been reporting and others have been reporting, are not russian forces. the idea that there are self-defense militias simply -- it defies credibility. >> and you know, the other part of the news conference, anderson, president putin described the overall situation in ukraine as an unconstitutional coo. do ukrainians that you've been talking to see this escalating in the next few days? >> reporter: you know, there's certainly a lot of concern about that and i think they are watching it very, very closely. i think it's certainly the fact that vladimir putin has not sent forces into eastern ukraine they would see as a pos
this new witness in the stand. the defense says the timing of this has taken them by surprise. it's a professional boxer who says he helped to cover up the role of oscar pistorius in a separate shooting incident just weeks before the death of reeva steenkamp. champion boxer kevin lerena, a friend of oscar pistorius and reeva steenkamp is the fourth witness to take the stand in the olympic star's murder trial. alleged he fired a gun inside a restaurant just weeks before he killed reeva steenkamp on valentine's day last year. >> a shot went off in the restaurant and then there was just complete silence. i was in shock and i looked down on the floor, and exactly where my foot was stationary, there was like a hole in the floor. >> reporter: he's accused of firing the gun under their table and amid the chaos asking a friend to take the blame. the prosecution is painting a picture of a man careless with guns. >> i do remember oscar saying, please, just say it was you. i don't want any attention around me. just say it was you. >> you swore again, mr. johnson. >> reporter: the pistorius d
was killed while running for defense. so that is a defense? kimberly guilfoyle, what do you think? will it work? >> no, i get it. she is going to use the name and whatever she can to kind of say look, this is what i have done. i believe what she was trying to say is these are the positive things i've done so this this jury would go easy on her. but the kennedys, man, they have gotten a lot of breaks, remember michael skakel? there was pretty good evidence they cut him some slack because he was related to the kennedys. >> and you have chappaquidick, the whole family rallies, they remind everybody they're catholic. >> she is trying to do everything they can in a court of law. >> can she say i meant to take this medicine but i took an ambien instead. >> well, you can say that, this case is getting a lot of attention, i think we know why. she is certainly entitled to put forth any defense she wants. this is a serious case in terms of people getting behind the wheel impaired. but it is a first time offender case being tried at the state level. >> is it believable to you? >> do i think
